Import Custom Data Dictionary Attribute Values from Excel File

We are just starting the build out of our Metapedia and a lot of our existing definitions and metadata exists in excel files. We've created Custom Attribute's in Information Steward and applied them to our object groups but I cannot find a way of importing our 'Custom Attributes' metadata from our excel files into the Metapedia.

Given the amount of metadata captured this is not something we are looking forward to manually inputting.

Does anyone know of a way to import the custom attributes?

    Hope this helps you below is how I have done it.

    I have export the excel output from IS Metapedia which had all my custom attributes.

    I copy/paste my existing definition to new imported excel output also add some data to my custom attributes and import it back to IS.

    Work for us every time.
